I'll stick with an overclocked i5-2500K :)
Youre doin it wrong.

Push it harder - my 2500k could do 4.9Ghz stable, Im sure i could have done 5Ghz if i bothered to tweak it a little. Its not like i didnt try but i was too lazy. At 4.9Ghz you'd pretty much demolish any game or benchmark so there was little point pushing it that last 100mhz unless it was for e-peen.

Definitely one of the best set ups ive ever had in all my years of being an enthusiast. That said though, I used to have a AMD64 3000+ that could do 2.75Ghz. I thought that was bad ass till i heard people getting 3Ghz out of it on suicide runs


ahhh nostalgia.... as nostalgic as the 9700 pro i have in a box somewhere. It still works but its not in 'working condition' memory on it is corrupt so all i see is blue tint and all sorts of shit on screen if i plug it into something and boot with it. I cant bring myself to throw it away because it done 9800 pro speeds.

And an overclocked Haswell refresh would certainly feel faster, or you could have the same performance and generate a lot less heat have a quieter cooler or both.
I don't understand advertising that you're holding on to old hardware.. at some point you'll upgrade and the longer you wait the less your current tech is worth.

Just wondering that WHY I should upgrade, since I'm having a CPU what is more than enough for me? I'm simply too lazy for buying new hardware, selling the old, installing the new (and cable management), using hours tweaking it for a slight increase which I probably won't even notice?

And I don't give a crap about heat or energy consumption, if I would, I probably would shut my PC's every night, but I keep them on 24/7. Before this 1155 mobo I had an AMD platform for 2 years, so I think that 2500K was a lot better boost (from 965BE @ 3.7GHz) than a Hashwell refresh would be from 2500K @ 4.5..


edit: I don't buy hardware to make random people from internet happy. I could stick with my #3 rig if I wouldn't play new games. :D

Epeen mostly. Plus faster is better. But if your too lazy., that kinda kills any reason anyway.

Money saved is money saved.. What about Broadwell though, upgrade the board and CPU now and drop in a 5790K or whatever when the time comes, Easy, solid performance gain now, even more with a quick upgrade later.

It's not about making anyone happy. I just don't see the point when there's good improvements with newer tech that saying your holding on to old tech is really adding anything to the conversation.
I'm using a 3570K and it does the job just fine, but I don't feel the need to tell everyone that I'm holding on to it for a a while yet, we all know how it stands up vs Haswell.

Well yeah maybe something like that. Anyway, my apartment has free electricity so it really doesn't matter to keep the systems running 24/7 :)

Also the reason why I bought an used 2500K was the TIM, no need to delid and change TIM to get better temps (and better OC), unlike Ivy or Haswell which has crappy TIM (and Haswell has a 0.06mm gap between the die and IHS), because with my Donald Duck's luck I'd probably break the CPU during the delidding process. :D
